Charles Foweraker

Charles Foweraker (11 March 1877 – July 1950) was an English football manager, serving in the capacity at Bolton Wanderers from 1919 to 1944, making him the club's longest serving manager. He is also the club's most successful manager, winning the FA Cup three times during his time there. Born Charles Elliott Foweraker in Ruthin, Denbighshire on 11 March 1877, his father Aaron was a coachman. He married Harriett Hodges at the parish church of St. Paul in Deansgate, Bolton on 19 July 1909. Foweraker was employed in various capacities by the club for 49 years, initially as a gateman and checker when Burnden Park first opened. At this time he was also employed by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company. Acting initially as assistant to Tom Mather, when Mather was called up by the Royal Navy in 1915, Foweraker took on his duties before making the position his own in 1919. During his time there, he presided over the club's greatest triumphs. The FA Cup was won in 1923 (the White Horse Final), 1926 and 1929. He also discovered Nat Lofthouse, a player generally regarded as the best player the club has ever produced.
